easy grader

Post by James Trotta » Mon Apr 12, 2010 1:13 pm

I think there are more easy graders in Korean universities than in American ones. In Korea it's not uncommon for students to ask why they didn't get an A+ especially if the class isn't curved. In America, unless we got an A= on every assignment we just don't expect to get an A+. The result is American professors teaching in Korea finding the high number of complaints about grades very strange.

The professor of the last semester class, English semantics, wasn't a easy grader but hard grader. Semantics exams are hard, but I studied hard and got grade higher than 90. I was ranked at least 3th, but I got an A0. Because my grade wasn't higher than 95 I got an A0 not A+. The class wasn't curved and I thought it might have been better if the class had been curved...

I hope James was an easy grader. But we might know he is really a fair professor.

One column revealed that G.P.A inflation is quite serious in some university in Korea. We need some measures to calm these easy graders.

It is hard to be an easy grader with the curve.

It is great if you are taking a course from an easy grader. But this semester, I have no easy graders.

Last year I took a philosofy class and I understood none of the concepts the professor explained to the students. The final exam was open-book test and I thought I was going to be mad taking it. However It turned out I got A+, and I kept wondering about the grade for I heard the professor was no easy grader. Nowdays I think he was exceptionally generous to freshmens.

Last semester, I heard a kind of English class's professor is an easy grader. I've got an A0, and I satisfied. But, I thought she is not an easy grader! I had to study so hard and turn in many essays...

Professor Kim is an easy grader. I want to take her class, if she has any other course.

There is one female foreign professor from Ukraina in my major, economics.
She consider only student's performance in giving grade, such as test score and assignment.
So, she lead to inflate GPA of economic majors.
